NEWS FROM NASFAA

There is still much work to be done with the current FAFSA rollout, but there is also a growing concern that ongoing delays could imperil the upcoming 2025-26 FAFSA, which is why NASFAA is urging the Department of Education (ED) to commit to the traditional October 1 launch date of the aid form.

NASFAA, along with dozens of other higher education organizations, signed onto a letter urging lawmakers from the House Rules Committee to oppose efforts to add the Bipartisan Workforce Pell Act and the Defending Education Transparency and Ending Rogue Regimes Engaging in Nefarious Transactions (DETERRENT) Act to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

Federal Student Aid (FSA) last week announced that it is administering a Title IV Institutional Survey in order to assess the ease with which schools are able to conduct business with the Department of Education (ED). An independent vendor, CFI Group, began to conduct the electronic survey on Tuesday, June 5. The survey will close by July 17, 2024. CFI Group will contact school financial aid administrators via email and provide a link to the web survey. More information on the survey can be found via FSA’s electronic announcement
